Hello everyone,

Thank you once again for your patience and understanding as we continue to navigate the unpredictability of Covid.

We are just as excited as you are to re-open our Arena facilities beginning this Monday, January 31 2022! As per Provincial directives, we are opening at 50% capacity indoors for participants on the ice and spectators in the stands and will be returning to Full Game Play. For those of you involved in the Shinny Program, this will also resume. Updated Ice User Guidelines are attached and come into effect Monday, January 31, 2022. We also wanted to highlight a few important reminders: Proof of Vaccination – Effective January 4th, 2022, the ONLY proof of vaccination that is accepted is the Enhanced Vaccination Certificate. This can be shown on your mobile device or with a printed copy. The QR code must be clear and able to be scanned.
